Since August 27th, 2012, all of diaspora*'s development has been done entirely by volunteers out in the open. This has allowed the project to grow in remarkable ways. New features, designs, and improvements have made their way into diaspora*'s code, and the project has evolved far beyond what its original founders could have ever expected.

Our community-driven project is now supported and backed by the Free Software Support Network, a project by Eben Moglen and the Software Freedom Law Center.

By agreement, FSSN is collaborating with diaspora* to provide support for management of branding, finances and legal assets. By donating to FSSN, you're helping support the goals and visions of diaspora*'s community. We're working hard to make the social web a better place, and we believe that, together, we can make something amazing.
